World Information Transfer, Inc., (WIT) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in General Consultative Status with the United Nations, promoting environmental health and literacy. In 1987, inspired by the Chornobyl nuclear tragedy in Ukraine, WIT was formed in recognition of the pressing need to provide accurate actionable information about our deteriorating global environment and its effect on human health. WIT exercises its mandate through:
WORLD ECOLOGY REPORT (WER):
Published since 1989, the World Ecology Report is a quarterly digest of critical health and environment issues, produced in four languages and distributed to thousands of citizens throughout the developing and developed world.
HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT CONFERENCES:
Since 1992, WIT has convened annual conferences, held at United Nations headquarters, on the growing clinical evidence supporting the link between environmental degradation and its effect on human health. The Conferences have been co-sponsored by UN member states and its agencies.
WIT offers internships at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Our goal is to assist future leaders understand what the world needs to be sustainable, and to learn about issues in health and environment. Our interns spend the majority of their time following the United Nations agenda. There are 3 sessions, spring, winter and summer – all require applications.
In conjunction with the K.Kovshevych Foundation, WIT provides humanitarian aid to schools, and orphanages in areas devastated by environmental degradation.
WIT assists the K.Kovshevych Foundation, in finding intellectually gifted university students in need of financial assistance to continue their studies in areas related to health and environment.
WIT publishes scientific presentations from our annual conferences held at the United Nations, the archived World Ecology Reports, Speakers Series and Virtual Voices on worldinfo.org.

A series of webinars hosted by WIT as part of its constant effort to promote fact-based, science-backed news on health and the environment are open to the public via Zoom and are later published on WIT’s YouTube channel and website.
Health and Environment: Global Partners for Global Solutions Conference. Since l992, WIT has convened what we believe to be one of the world’s premier forums for the presentation of scientific papers by international experts on the growing clinical evidence supporting the link between degrading environments and diminished human health.
